With a sound that sits impatiently between The Velvet Underground and European techno, The Delta Fiasco have crafted an audio-visual happening’ of subversive, avant-garde allure. With catchy hooks, haunting vocals and synchronised bleeps the Liverpool outfit bring a whole new darkness to the current de rigueur for smiley-faced nu-rave. However don’t expect a depressive sound. Their live shows may be filthily malevolent slices of electronic spectacle but with remixes by Ladytron, and a West Coast recording base courtesy of Virgin Tears there is an optimistic lightness slicing through their particular brand of sonic architecture. Vocalist Nathan Walczak enthuses, “Each night is a moment, to catch just one person in the crowd thinking, what the fuck is happening?’. After adrenaline fuelled supports slots with New Young Pony Club, Gossip, Presets, Foals, Wombats and Goose, it is unsurprising that they are considered Liverpool’s most intense live act: exhilarating.

Simon Hilton (Drums, Percussion) , Nathan Walczak (Vocals, Guitars, Synthesisers) , Nicholas Bentley (Guitars, Synthesisers, Laptops, Programming)

These three Scousers’ (or ‘Liverpudlians’ as they also fondly called) churn out electro synth-fed creations- like the Liverpudlian version of NY’s electro-rock duo Shy Child (with guitar). Then again, the track “Death Letters” also has a bit of a shoe-gaze edge ala Interpol. RCRDLBL
